School notices via podcast
Fitchburg State College is distributing emails with a link to a podcast to all accepted applicants for the fall semester, in an attempt to ease the school into using podcasts for classroom activities. The school president, Robert Antonucci, sent out the messages and the podcast, which includes audio and video to break the good news to students, according to a report from the Associated Press. The school will still send out traditional envelopes with notification of acceptance or rejection, alongside the email notice.
